    Lefy mouse botton?

    Hi everyone, about a week or 10 days ago, my left mouse botton stop working
    with my icons on the desktop, but it will work with things that I start up
    using the start botton.
    Is there anything I can check for or do to get this function back.

    Thanks alot,
    GeorgeR.

    RE: Lefy mouse botton?

    It's seems weird that the behavior would be selective like that. A couple of
    questions:

    With items on the desktop, does the right button now act as you would expect
    the left mouse button to? -or does it still act like a right-click?

    If you go into Control Panel, and re-assert the mouse button settings, does
    that restore the function to what you expect?

    Can you try another mouse or go back to the generic Windows mouse driver (if
    you use a specialized one)?

    Now I did it: I said a couple of questions and I posed three (maybe four)!
    Let us know what you find...

    Let this forum know if this helps or if you figure out the problem, so
    others can benefit.
